Charles Rogers -- the #2 overall pick in the 2003 NFL Draft -- has died, multiple outlets and former teammates confirm. He was only 38.
The details surrounding Rogers' death are unclear. We're working on it.
One of the people conforming his death is former Michigan State teammate Chris Baker.
"Devastated to learn of the passing of my spartan brother Charles Rodgers," Baker said.
"Spoke with his mom this morning. Please pray for her and his children. Please also be respectful of their privacy at this difficult time. Rip Chuck."
Rogers was selected by the Detroit Lions and flashed huge potential -- catching 22 passes for 243 yards and 2 touchdowns during his first 5 games of the '03 season.
